you or whatever-- i tried to control that and say, "that's a lie, they're liars." >> suarez: reactions were swift in coming. the former deputy director of the tour de france criticid armstrong's argument that, in effect, everybody was doping. >> ( translated ): well, now he confesses. it doesn't change anything. however, he says that it is about professionalism, that it is part of the job to dope. this is unbelievable, unacceptable, because every job has its own rules. he knowingly broke these rules. and to say this is to once again make a fool of the other cyclists, of his running mates, those who didn't dope. >> suarez: at the same time, the director of australia's tour down under said cycling will recover from the damage done by armsong. >> no doubt about it, it's a big kick in the guts, isn't it, for the sport. but i think, my own feeling is that the general public and supporters of the sport who know what's going on, and who follow the sport, will see the young athletes coming through.
